Answer

SO2 - sp2 SO3 - sp2 SO3^2- - sp3 SCl4 - sp3d SCl6 - sp3d2 S2Cl2 - sp3

Work Step by Step

Start with the Lewis diagram for each. One way to do it is to use VSEPR theory to predict the geometry. The geometry will tell you the hybridization linear = sp trigonal planar or bent (120) = sp2 tetrahedral, trigonal pyramidal, bent (109.5) = sp3 trigonal bipyramidal, see-saw, T-shaped, linear = sp3d octahedral, square pyramidal, square planar = sp3d2 SO2 - sp2 SO3 - sp2 SO3^2- - sp3 SCl4 - sp3d SCl6 - sp3d2 S2Cl2 - sp3
